COUNTED CROSS STITCH CHART BY FABY REILLY DESIGNS
If you have seen her incredible lavender series, you know Faby Reilly has a great talent for depicting flowers. Here come her poppies!
The delicate flowers wind around the biscornu, revealing their beautiful and fragile bloom. The red petals are enhanced with tiny jet black seed beads and beautiful specialty stitches add depth and interest to the stitched piece. If you have never experimented with Spider Web and Diamond eyelet stitches, here is an opportunity to give them a go. Faby Reilly's fine chart also includes tutorials for all these specialty stitches.
The reverse of the biscornu is embellished with the words (Red-Rouge Poppy-Coquelicot) stitched in petite stitch over one thread.
The button shown in the center of the biscornu was hand made, using Fimo paste, like the one Faby Reilly created for the cornflower biscornu. Although it's a different shape, if you'd like to make your own, you can check out the method used for making the cornflower button on our free tutorials page.
